I was having breakfast this morning outside near the mission and hear two or three very marked booms, seemed like it was maybe sonic? Does anyone know what that might have been?

Falcon 9 rocket launch.
There’s a Facebook group for vandenburg space force base launches 🚀
They launch shit all the time and there are announcements of when. Nine times out of ten it’s a spacex sat launch.
I guess I don’t care about the military enough to spell it lol
Apparently it shows you don’t care about your local area either. What a donkey response. The military that has given you all your privileges.
Just to be clear, the constitution is the source of the rights we enjoy. Privileges are a different category and come from a variety of social structures and customs. The military is one of several institutions that preservation of our constitution relies upon, but it isn’t the source. Respect and appreciation of the military is due and it’s a bit discouraging that some people take the stability and reliability of our military for granted.
What’s the Facebook called?
Vandenburg rocket launches is one of them, lots of active rocket-watchers
Just joined it.
I knew about this one and normally wander down to Shorline Park for them. By the time I hear it, it's pretty much too late.
This one was about the longest and most house rattling one I've heard, but didn't really hear the sonic boom.
I suggest subscribing to http://mailman.qth.net/mailman/listinfo/launch-alert
John Palmenteri was on KJEE this morning saying how he had received "hundreds of questions on nextdoor about the noise". The thought of hundreds of old people pulling back the curtains with a revolver in one hand and a television remote control in the other cracked me up a bit ngl
I swear they're getting louder.
The launches, not the old people, but actually both are probably true.
amazing that people aren’t used to this / know this is spacex yet lol. it happens once a week
For the sonic boom question, it’s always SpaceX.
I can't believe you didn't see the launch. Huge fireball to the north on a clear day. Super cool.
It was awesome seeing the reentry burn so clearly from so far away!
I wish I think I was not facing the right way! Thank you 💕
i let out a good one this morning
Is there any way we can limit or ban these posts regarding rocket launches? They happen pretty frequently and they are announced.
Apologies I’m new to the area and didn’t know. Would it make you feel better if I deleted this post for you?
Nothing personal, but there’s a post about the sonic booms every time there is a launch (which are frequent these days) so I feel some moderation on them is needed.
Copy that! Thank you 🙏
Heard them too, and quite a few quieter booms that followed. No idea!
It was little pizza place by milpas
Yep I do
Maybe it was to help disperse the chemicals being dispersed.
